Q&A with Liam Corkery

Did you relocate for your role at Spearline?

I relocated to Skibbereen, Co Cork, Ireland as a graduate for a role at Spearline in 2009.  I was hired as a software developer and it was my first job after college. Apart from the Co-Founders, Kevin Buckley, CEO and Matthew Lawlor, CTO, I was one of the first employees of the company.  I liked the idea of working with a start-up as I was given more responsibility and a role with greater meaning.


What did you study at college?

I have a Computer Science degree from University College Cork (UCC), Ireland.


What was your role before joining Spearline?

I was working in a completely different area – as a labourer in the building industry before going back to college.


Why did you change careers?

I always had a big interest in computers and programming and the endless possibilities that computers, the internet and IT present.


Briefly describe your role at Spearline

I am Head of Development at Spearline.  A large part of my role is to delegate to and coordinate a team that is curious about future possibilities.  I am responsible for designing new solutions for the future as well as upkeeping existing software products. I oversee and develop the team across three offices – in Ireland, India and Romania.


What is the most interesting part of your role?

It’s hard to beat the satisfaction you get from coming up with a new solution to novel problems.  Watching those ideas turn into solutions after developing them is a unique experience every time because you’re always dealing with something new and different.  We start with an idea, analyse it, design a solution to a problem, build and then implement it. My role is to play a continuous part in the process from inception to conclusion.
